First published in the late 1940s, “The Gyp Artist” is William Larsen’s entertaining lecture that magicians can give on various con games or swindles and their methods. It is a topic that audiences always find of interest and so it’s an easy “sell” for local club, civic group, and other bookings. Larsen provides a solid framework you can use to build your own presentation – from introductory lecture and patter suggestions to tricks and handling. All are standard tricks or props, or instructions are provided on how to make up easily. Use as a complete lecture or simply add one or two of these “gyps” to your current act. Quality new Trickshop.com edition, 16 pages, re-typeset.
